Overview

Singing Up the Sun is a celebration of our relationship to nature, while Swimming Through the Moon is an exploration of human nature. In the tradition of Mary Oliver and Gary Snyder, these poems move beyond the Romantic notion of using nature as merely a metaphor, they plumb the depth of inherent meaning found in the wild world. Like Dylan Thomas, this poet writes a poem every year on his birthday as an anchor in an ever changing world. Fox also enjoys playing with genre, so there are free verses, list poems, haiku, and a triolette. Poetry written over the past 30 years gives the reader a deeper view into the life of a poet's evolution from idealistic youth through the land of dreams fulfilled into the ripeness of middle age.
